    I am not a weatherman but it sure looks to be a beautiful day in Bloomington tomorrow. I'm not 100% sure, I mean it could always rain but it sure does look to be a very nice afternoon.

    Really nice interaction today between Trey and Khristian Lander on Instagram Live. Clearly have a good relationship but were always cautious to talk about the other’s recruitment. Interesting comments were made about IU’s recruitment of Dawson Garcia from Trey. Seems like he has become a huge priority for the staff and Galloway mentioned he has been on him hard. Sounds like a visit is very possible. Always enjoy watching recruits IG Live streams as it’s usually very telling of how the recruit is feeling. Anyway figured I’d share for those who didn’t catch it.

    Btown Banners is the best message board I’ve ever been on. So happy to be a part of this.

    Just why? Stay. Off. Twitter. People. It’s not hard at all. All you’re doing is making the fans look like assholes, as well as yourself in the process.

    I would say by the end of this week or weekend. I think Calbert interviewed for the job but I do not think he will get the job. I think it will be a very good hire, someone with a lot of experience who the fans will be happy with.

    As opinionated as I am. What the fans want and what the fans need are almost certainly different. Hire the best person for the job. End of story.

    I would really like for IU to get both Galloway and Leal. So much better than given credit. In my eyes, they are perfect for Archie’s style of play. Tough on the defensive end, understand how to move without the ball, understand how to move the ball and both can shoot the 3. These are the kids that would otherwise go to Purdue and kick our a$$ for 3-4 years. Honestly, I’m over the shiny objects. If we can fill the roster with kids like this and sprinkle in the TJD’s, Romeo’s, and occasional high 4-5 star, we will compete year in and year out.

    A tweet from our lead recruiter - TJD @TrayceJackson FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY What better day to be a HOOSIER? Goodluck with your decision my boy, but yk what we want

    His full report is behind the paywall but I surely do like the tone of his tweet. Jeff Rabjohns @JeffRabjohns Indiana's Trayce Jackson-Davis and Joey Brunk impress playing with and against pros in Wednesday night's Pro-Am in Indy.

    What happens? IU finishes with the same record in the B1G as Holtman and Ohio St. both teams ended up being mediocre power 5 conference teams last year. Nothing special about either. Only difference is they snuck in the tournament by beating the middle of the B1G at home and IU didn’t. They were pretty much the same teams. Holtman and Ohio St went 0-8 against the top 5 teams in B1G. IU won 3 games against the top 5 teams. Before you use head to head as an argument IU beat Michigan St twice doesn’t mean IU was the better team. Another difference is IU made Leals top 2 and Ohio St didn’t Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Do you think we use that with Purdue? They couldn't even get Phinisee. I don't really think coaches use this strategy very much.

    His players have played exactly one season at Indiana. And he learned from that experience with a couple of them already gone. Last season, Indiana played with a freshman who really didn't have his game because of injuries and sights set to the next level (his not playing at all in the NIT was embarrassing); another freshman point guard who physically missed 6 games and probably played less than himself another 10, so Indiana was forced to play with guards incapable (until later) of running a team or guarding at the Big Ten level; an under-sized post player and no depth in the front court. I don't know about anyone else, but I saw effort improve late in the season. I saw an almost unbelievable to me metamorphosis of DeVonte Green. I saw a group of players who didn't fit here (and may have at Dayton) leave the program. I see a very successful focus on in state recruiting. I see the addition of Joey Brunk a HUGE positive. i see Jackson-Davis and Franklin as kids who will contribute immediately and likely stay for at least 3 seasons. (Get old and stay old....I'm all over that philosophy) And I see the departure of the 5* kid with the alternate agenda as addition by subtraction. Very good player and apparently a decent kid; bad fit. It happens. Still had to recruit him. I see Indiana as a program on the rise, and I believe this season will show dramatic improvement in many areas, and I do think we make the NCAA Tournament. I sincerely believe - using eyeball test only - I saw growth last season, I could almost see Archie learning. I do wish he'd hire Michael Lewis away and bring him to Bloomington, though. And in 2 years, bring Taylor Wayer back. That kid is going to be fantastic as a college coach if he wants to be.

    It's a bit amusing to see an armchair QB evaluate Archie's demeanor and "sense of urgency". While still a young head coach, he's recruited at big-time basketball schools (OSU & Arizona) and then had a very successful stint at UD. Then he comes here, taking over a team that, well, stunk the previous season. Three of the best players on that roster bailed for the NBA, and if the stories are to be believed he was instructed to retain the 3 Crean recruits (1 who has been fair to good, 1 who has disappointed, and 1 who couldn't even get minutes as a sophomore and has since transferred). Besides not knowing anything about his methods and tactics with recruiting, he's still brought in the last two Mr. BBs, Rob P, and J Hunter. As I've posted before, it's time to start seeing improvement in both the record and quality of play. But his tenure here is still young and if one listened closely to CAM last season and post-season, he said a lot of the same things we posters have said about our weaknesses and what needs to improve. I don't know if he'll lead us to a final four, but I am pretty sure he knows what he's doing and what needs to be done (not to mention what is expected of the program under his leadership).

    Jallow wasn’t overlooked. Archie and staff recruited and tracked him that summer. He wasn’t on a shoe circuit and they evaluated him several times. They were recruiting him for the 2018 class, his original class. Ohio st offered him a spot for the 2017 class because Holtman needed to fill a roster and he was recruiting him at Butler. Jallow chose to reclassify and go to a situation that was best for him. Indiana had no spots for the 2017 class even if they wanted to offer him. If he would of stayed in 2018 who knows if IU would of kept recruiting him but he definitely wasn’t overlooked. If people want to say it’s a bad look for a local kid to “spurn” IU that’s cool and in Leals case I would agree with them it wouldn’t of been a good look( not going to happen). As long as after Friday those same people come back on here and say it’s a great look for a top 100 local kid to stay home and play for Archie and Indiana Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
